Hooded Merganser

This male is part of one pair taking advantage of a newly created pool (thanks beavers) near the beginning of the boardwalk at Huntley Meadows wetland area. At least two males have been working the area, but this one consistently has a female present as well. Maybe breeding success at the park will pick up with the nice addition of a more secluded feeding area.
